The Solar for Schools Community Benefit Society Ltd (CBS) was set-up in 2016 to enable schools in England and Wales to benefit from solar panels without having to invest themselves, yet share in the expected long-term profits, or surplus income generated by each solar project despite very low government subsidies.

Our constitution is in the form of Rules registered and approved by the Financial Conduct Authority. As a Community Benefit Society we are bound to act for the benefit of the community of schools were panels are installed.



The CBS is governed by a cross-disciplinary group with a depth of experience in renewable energy funding, sustainability education, funding for education, contract management, managing schools and dealing with solar energy on schools.
